The Memphis Red Sox began in 1922 as a combination of players from the Union Giants and Barber College Team. The team began at the minor league level, but when the league had to reorganize the following season, the Red Sox began playing major league level teams. Since the team was one of the few to own their stadium, extra profits allowed the Red Sox to recruit top level players and they began playing full time at the major league level in the Negro National League in 1924. The Red Sox were successful throughout the 1930's winning a championship, but when WWII started, the team lost multiple players to military service and was never competitive again.
